CLIPPERS PAIR OPT OUT OF CONTRACTS

It wasn’t exactly unexpected, but judgement day for the Clippers has finally arrived.

Chris Paul and Blake Griffin, two of LA’s ‘Lob City’, have opted out of their contracts.

This kicks off what could be a rough free agency period for the Clippers, with both stars linked to opposing teams for a future home.

Paul has supposedly given serious thought to the Spurs and Pelicans, and has been rumored to be unhappy in LA. Still, the amount of money he’d turn down at 32 to leave (almost $50 million extra) is too high to really think he’d go.

For Griffin, however, there are serious signs. He noticeably left LA off his list of top NBA cities, and hasn’t been in LA since free agency started.

This is going to be interesting.
